· D-Day landing beaches and war memorials

Getting to Normandy

The nearest major airports are in London and Paris. From there, there are several ways to get to the château:

· Take a train from Paris Saint-Lazare to Valognes (2h45),
· Take a train from London to Portsmouth (1h45); ferry from Portsmouth to Cherbourg (3h)
· If you're up for adventure, rent a car from Paris and drive! It'll be the easiest way to explore the area throughout the week. 

 

FLIGHTS

There are a lot of theories about the best time to book an international flight. One website tells us it's nine months in advance for high season in Europe. A travel agent friend says March is the best time. Mashable says there is no ideal time. That said, here are a few tips:

· Download the Hopper app and put this trip on your 'watchlist'—Hopper will notify you when prices for your flights are at their predicted lowest points. 

· Create a price alert on Kayak, which will email you on either a weekly or daily basis. 

· Hope, pray, do a rain dance, ask Laura for help—but don't wait too long!

Where to Stay

We're pleased to offer you complimentary accommodation at the château from August 23rd–27th! There's limited space and it's first come, first serve, so please RSVP soon.

Due to the configuration of beds in the château, we unfortunately can't offer single rooms. We'll do our very best to make sure you're comfortable, but if you'd prefer a single room or would like to make other arrangements, you're welcome to do so. There are several lovely hotels and B&Bs a short drive away. Click the map to see our recommendations for accommodation, dining, and activities!
